Bandit has a tether strap that connects his harness to a rear seat belt insert. It allows him to stand with his front paws on the center console of my Kia Soul or stick his nose out either rear side window. He’s a 20 lbs rescue and he goes ballistic in a crate. If I do not fasten him to the backseat he wants to sit on my lap.

Growing up in a hoarding situation, I’m pretty sure he was never crated and had never ridden in a car. He does ok in town but does not relax at highway speeds.

I have a 6 month old Corgi and we have a backseat cover for him which buckles into the seat buckle and is pretty secure. That way he can move around a bit and not feel too constrained.

3 dogs, all 20 lbs or less. The Feist usually rides in the passenger seat with my wife. The Cairne Terrier and the Chihuahua ride in the back seat of the pickup (Chevy 2500 HD). We put a pet hammock that attaches to the front and rear headrests on the back seat. The Cairne usually sleeps on a moving blanket on the driver's side floorboard, while the Chihuahua sleeps in the seat.
The latter 2 aren't allowed in the front seat, to keep them out of my lap.

years ago, the ford explorer I was driving with my wife, young son in his infant seat and the chocolate lab, secured in the back in its crate met some black ice

long story short, it left the road went down the hill and turned over 1 1/2 times ending with the driver side down and facing the other way

only injury was to my elbow when I punched out the side window while it did that

not sure if any other type of restraint would have protected us from the 90 lb plus dog flying around the vehicle or protect the dog itself

Late to the party; my 7# dog is always in her booster chair, that has the seat belt going thru it. There is an additional strap secured to seat belt that is then secured to a very good padded harness.

She can look out the window, lay down, and if I hit the brakes, or in an accident, she is restrained in the booster chair.
